166w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has revealed today that Sports Champions Haunted PS3 DLC is coming to PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Let me bring you back in time to E3 2009, where we debuted a little tech demo for a brand new motion control platform, later to become what we now all know and love as the PlayStation Move.
In the tech demo you could sword fight with a skeleton (anyone remember tickling the skeleton's chin with the sword blade?), use dual handed throwing stars, and shoot arrows at an endless parade of skeletons. Most of the mechanics in the demo were the basis of a title that was, at the time, only a work in progress, but would become Sports Champions.
Well, our skeletons have finally been let out of the closet again with a brand new Sports Champions DLC pack called the Haunted Pack, available for sale through the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, October 5 for $4.99. The new content includes three new frightful characters that are playable in all six events, as well as new spooky equipment for each of the sports.
• Disc Golf - Phantom Disc Set
• Bocce - Skull Bocce Set
• Table Tennis...
166w ago - Today Game Director Luca Ferrara at Milestone SRL has announced that Superstars V8 Racing is coming to PSN on October 26 alongside giveaway details, as follows:
Not long ago, our friends at O-Games announced here on the blog that Superstars V8 Racing would be launching in North America exclusively on PlayStation Network as a download with all of the trimmings of a retail game for only $19.99.
Today we're here to let you know that the date is officially set for October 26th - and we'd love to tell you more about our studio and the work we put into the project since its inception.
My name is Luca Ferrara, and I'm the Game Director on Superstars V8 Racing. As a developer, Milestone has been working in the racing genre for many, many years. Driving is our passion, and bringing our passion into the world of video games is our specialty.
Some of you might know us from other franchises on two wheels like Moto GP 07 and the SBK Superbike World Championship series. Others might recognize us from our days working on games like the Screamer series and Evolution GT.
While a large portion of our fans reside in Europe, we rarely get an opportunity to reach out to our fans in the US - so I'm happy to be here to tell...
168w ago - Ronimo Games Co-Founder and Game Designer Fabian Akker has posted up a video announcement today confirming that Swords & Soldiers is coming soon to PlayStation Network.
To quote: I'm here to tell you about our upcoming PlayStation Network game: Swords & Soldiers!
Swords & Soldiers is a side scrolling real time strategy game, in which three unique factions battle each other: the brutal Vikings, the devious Aztecs and the cunning Chinese, across 30 missions to reach a giant pepper.
Each faction has their own reasons to chase after this giant pepper. The Vikings want epic BBQ sauce, the Chinese child emperor wants the pepper's mind-bending powers and the Aztecs are trying to keep it so they can win the annual vegetable growing contest! During their campaigns you'll also unlock some leader board-enabled challenge modes to give you some more room to show off your skills.
We're also really excited to present a 3-D mode for Swords & Soldiers so that everyone can experience the game in another dimension.
So, a side scrolling strategy game, how does that work? Well basically it plays like a mix between an RTS and a fighting game. You build units and cast spells...
169w ago - Eidos Interactive Group Community Manager Keir Edmonds has revealed today that Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is coming to PSN later this month.
To quote: I'm here to give you the lowdown on Crystal Dynamics' latest offering Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
In case you haven't seen any LCGoL news over the last few weeks and months, here's the skinny. I have decided to boil the key info down into bullet points because I like to waffle.
"Wait... what?" - Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light isn't a Tomb Raider?!
Crystal Dynamics are currently working on two projects. One of them is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, the other one is another game which I can't mention or I'd get sacked *cough* Tomb Raider *cough*.
The studio had a chance to really experiment and do something new and exciting with LCGoL. As a result they've crafted an arcade style digital download that draws on all the fundamental aspects you'd associate with Lara (including great puzzles) but also added some fresh elements. It is made of win. It really is made of win...
I had the good fortune of demoing LCGoL at E3 this year. Everyone who got their hands on the game enjoyed...
